Youngsters from 1st Holbeach Guides, Brownies and Rainbows let their hair down at Weston Fun Farm to celebrate the 89th anniversary of their founders’ births.

The youngsters joined about ten million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world to mark World Thinking Day, first held in 1926 to mark the birthdays of Lord and Lady Baden-Powell who founded the Boy Scout and Girl Guide movements respectively.

Brownie leader Jane Dean said: “This year, we have a new District Commissioner for the Holbeach area and it was decided to to go to the Fun Farm where all the Guides, Brownies and Rainbows could go absolutely wild in a very safe, secure place which is very important to us.

“Many of the leaders, helpers and the District Commissioner took a very active part in the event and afterwards, there was a service where we all renewed our Girl Guiding promise and collected donations for our Lincs to Minsk project (an exchange project with Guides in Belarus).”
